Photographer's Note

Along Araniko Highway (1)


NOTE: First I wrote about the rute and the growing wheat
Then, Luciano said that he saw lot of canabis or marijuana plants and Subho write telling me where were them
They are at the right framing the woman, as well that covering the BG
I decided to change the title for a more descriptive one


Araniko Highway, connects Kathmandu with Kodari at the border with Tibet (China), it was built by China during the 1963-67 period, long of about 115 kilometres (71 mi), the trip last about 4-5 hours

Wiki said: It is among the most dangerous of highways in Nepal due to extremely steep slopes on each side of the road

The photo
Taken from the van
There are impressive landscapes, people working at the fields, animals
Being in a group, not easy to ask for stops, so I decided to take some shots from the window
This woman, well-dressed, was of her way climbing to the route, just for an instant our eyes met and then she and the basket where gone
At the back, terraces where wheat growns
